I'd have to agree with Dan's make it an option (default ON) idea. And, for now, just do the swap in a second pass. Those who care about efficiency are smart enough to turn off the option and do it themselves. But the ones who don't care about efficiency are probably not smart enough to be able to turn it ON - so you better leave it on as a default.
